Make My Easter with Hot Tamales Peeps & Other Crazy Flavs
PEEPS MAKE ME HAPPY
I thought everyone loved Peeps? Don't they? I was talking with my friends today and it seems like I'm the only one, along with my family, that is totally into peeps. Something about the way the bright, happy little chicks, with a marshmallow center makes me happy.
WHAT ARE PEEPS MADE OF?
Now that I think about it; I'm not sure my kids like Peeps either? Regardless, when I heard about Hot Tamales Peeps coming out, and was all crazy wanting to run to the store and buy some. I didn't, because these little tasty treats will trap me. They tastes so light and fluffy, you think you can eat them all day. For me, one is one too many.
Eating just 4 sugary chicks are 270 calories. If you sit down and eat three boxes of those little things, you've had 810 calories. Not only that, 60 grams of sugar, 1 gram of proteins, but NO fat. I can never figure that part out.
THE FLAVORS ARE CRAZY
Now...I'm not trying to pick on Peeps. I love them. I love the yellow chicks, the purple and blue bunnies, and all the exciting flavors. Oh! Maybe you didn't know that they have not only Hot Tamales Peeps this year. There are more:
- Party Cake
- Cotton Candy
- Hot Tamales
- Sour Watermelon
- Fruit Punch
- Blue Raspberry
- Rootbeer Float
- Chocolate Pudding
INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PEEPS

- The original Peeps had wings! They decided that it was quicker to streamline and make the Peeps without wings. You can imagine them instead.
- You can actually visit one of three Peeps stores in the world, by visiting the Mall of America in Bloomington.
